Here's another simple antenna that can be used at your home station or in portable or emergency operations, such as the upcoming 2017 ARRL Field Day on 24-25 June 2017.  Simon (M0YKS/2E0HTS) uses a simple 20 meter delta loop, vertically polarized , along with an automatic antenna "tuner" to cover the 20 m, 17 m, 15 m, 12 m, and 10 meter amateur radio bands . Simon says he also uses the antenna on 40 meters.  I see his daughter, Martha, is serving as backup operator at Simon's station.  A nice, pleasant, "laid back" video that gets the message across simply and accurately.  I've used delta loops for several years. They are easy to build and fairly quiet. For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, please visit these sites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com. https://bi

Simple Ham Radio Antennas--DELTA Loop. Post #745.

If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/OD9CU4c_KNY.  The Delta Loop is a simple, easy-to-build, inexpensive, and efficient antenna that is excellent for both receiving and transmitting.  In this video from Simon (M0YKS/2E0HTS), we learn just how easy it is to design, build, and use this full-wavelength antenna.  In this tutorial, Simon builds the antenna for the 20 meter amateur radio band. With an antenna transmatch (i.e. tuner or ATU) and a 1:1 balun, this antenna works fairly well on 17 meters, 15 meters, 12 meters, and even 10 meters. You get 5 bands for the price of 1.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
